Playmates for Dr. Pepper


Fanta has two babies! They were born late last night. I’ll have more details later. One is all black, a miniature Fanta, and the other one has more of Mr. Pibb’s coloring, brown with black around the eyes, a black stripe down the back, black booties, and a black underbelly.

It looks like a little bear cub!

    How cute! I love the goat babies….all the farm babies, actually!

  3. Shirley T says:

    It’s the cutest thing I have ever seen. Now we can really call you the Goat Lady.I hope they all fit into the dog house. How do you stand all the cuteness?? Are you sleeping in the dog house with them?

    Congratulations, Grammy!! They are the cutest little babies! :clover:

  7. Larissa says:

    Congrats, G-ma!

    Can I tell you how much my kids love looking at the pictures on your site? Everynight when I sit down and open the laptop, my two-year-old comes over and says, “Want see baby goats!” And we do.

    Can you guess how many times I have watched the video of the goat being born or the sheep playing with the dog? I bet you can!

  13. Grammy Jam says:

    I would want to spend all of my time with them and get nothing else done ever!

  14. Dawn Carrica says:

    Whohoooo! I love kidding season. Bouncy goat babies are good for the soul! Congratulations.

  17. mary ellen says:

    I am so happy that dr pepper finally has playmates!

  18. jlh says:

    congratulations! the little bay one looks like an oberhasli in color.

  19. KaraLeigh says:

    So cute, Suzanne! I love your soda names, so I can’t wait to see what these two are called. :happyflower: (We have some favorite sodas we get whenever we are in North Carolina. What about naming them Cheerwine and Sundrop???) :shimmy:

  20. jan~n~tn says:

    Playmates for all. They are little bundles of cuteness. OOOO-OOOH it looks like a Root-BEAR. LOL

  21. BeckyW says:

    How exciting Suzanne! I am still waiting on my girls…I had thought I might have some kidding the end of this month but it’s not looking that close I don’t think…

    Question? You are having cold weather similar to ours here in the Midwest I would say…do you use any heat lamps or do you find they do just fine with a good shelter?

    Do you have any concerns with them getting too chilled before they dry off? Just curious.

  22. bonita says:

    Good grief, how can all that cuteness fit in that tiny dog house. Is the ‘more experienced’ Nutmeg showing Fanta the ropes? I’m afraid that if those kids were mine, my curds would dry, the cookies would burn, and the bread would rise out of sight. I’d be camped out at the goat pen, 24/7.

  23. claudia w says:

    More cuteness! How can you stand it all? Beautiful kids!

  24. Michelle says:

    Congrats on the new babies!

    The brown and black one’s coloring is called “Chamoisee”. Here’s a helpful link for color genetics:

  25. Jenny Sterling says:
